If you are a Mall Buyer, you will be deemed to have consented to the terms and conditions described in these Seapurchase Support Policy when you make purchases on Seapurchase Mall.  Similarly, if you are a Mall Seller, you will be deemed to have consented to the terms and conditions described in these Seapurchase Support Policy by your continued participation in Seapurchase Mall.  These Seapurchase Support Policy supplement the Terms of Service and the other Seapurchase Policies, of which these Seapurchase Support Policy forms a part – please read the Terms of Service and the other Seapurchase Policies available on the Site as they contain important information regarding your rights and obligations.  Any terms that are used in these Seapurchase Support Policy that are not defined here will have the meanings given to such terms in the Terms of Service and/or the applicable Seapurchase Policy.  All terms and conditions described in these Seapurchase Support Policy are subject to change at Seapurchase’s discretion pursuant to the Terms of Service.  

 

1.         Seapurchase Mall Refunds and Return Policy

 

1.1       Mall Buyer may apply for a refund and/or return of an item purchased on Seapurchase Mall (a “Mall Item”) by completing a return/refund request and returning the Mall Item as described below at any time within fifteen (15) calendar days after the date that Mall Item was first made available for Mall Buyer to take delivery (the “Free Return Period”). Usually, that date would be the date Mall Buyer received delivery of the Mall Item; however, if Mall Buyer did not receive the Mall Item because of Mall Buyer’s absence from the destination address or Mall Buyer’s failure to input the proper destination address, that date would be the date on which delivery attempt was first made.

 

1.2       Please note that Mall Buyer must ship the Mall Item to a location designated by Seapurchase within ten (10) calendar days after the return request is raised and in any event no later than the last day of the Free Return Period.  Mall Items that are returned may be returned via Singpost, PopStation or a courier designated by Seapurchase by no later than the last day of the Free Return Period.  Seapurchase reserves the right to reject any application where the Mall Item was dispatched later than ten (10) calendar days after the return request is raised.

 

1.3       The approval of your request for refund and return will be made by Seapurchase in its sole discretion after reviewing your completed refund/return request and inspecting the condition of the Mall Item that was returned. Mall Buyer acknowledges and agrees that Seapurchase’s decision is final, conclusive and binding, and covenants and agrees that it will not bring suit or otherwise assert any claim against Seapurchase or its affiliates in relation to such decision.  The Mall Item that was returned must be, at a minimum, in the following conditions:   

 

·              New and sealed condition;

·              Complete, with all items included in the purchase; and

·              With original product packaging and price tags.

 

If any additional conditions apply to a certain Mall Item, Seapurchase will inform you via the Site, SMS or email.  The conditions for the Mall Items subject to return are referred to as the “Return Conditions”.

 

1.4       In addition, please note that certain types of Mall Items may be excluded from the Refunds and Return Policy described in these Seapurchase Support Policy, including but not limited to:

 

 

·              Electronics;

·              Digital goods, such as mobile top-up cards, audio or video recording or software;

·              Goods that are perishable or may otherwise deteriorate or expire rapidly, such as groceries; and

·              Goods that are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygienic reasons, such as cosmetics, swimwear and underwear.

 

 

If any Mall Item is excluded from the Refunds and Return Policy described in these Seapurchase Support Policy, Seapurchase will make reasonable efforts to publish that information on our Site or otherwise inform the Mall Buyers; however, please note that our policies may change without notice at any time and certain Mall Items may be subject to exclusion after Mall Buyer has purchased them.  Any Mall Item that is subject to exclusion from the Refunds and Return Policy described in these Seapurchase Support Policy is referred to as an “Excluded Item”. 

 

1.5 Seapurchase reserves the right to (a) add to or otherwise amend the list of Excluded Items and/or the Return Conditions and (b) amend, terminate or suspend the Refunds and Return Policy described in these Seapurchase Support Policy (including the length of the Free Return Period), in each case, at any time in its sole discretion. 

 

1.6 eapurchase may reject in its sole discretion any returned Mall Item (and the related request for refund and return):

 

·              that is an Excluded Item;

·              that does not meet the Return Conditions; or

·              if the Mall Item was returned in a manner that does not comply with Section 1.2 above.

 

Please note that Seapurchase’s determination will be based on the list of terms of conditions in effect at the time of such determination (including the list of Excluded Items, the Return Conditions and the Free Return Period), and therefore pursuant to Section 1.5 above, such list of Excluded Items, the Return Conditions and/or the length of Free Return Period may be different from those in effect at the time Mall Buyer has completed the refund/return request and/or returned the Mall Item.

 

If Seapurchase rejects a request for refund and return, Seapurchase will organize the delivery of such Mall Item to the relevant Mall Buyer’s address to which the Mall Item was originally delivered, and Seapurchase shall be entitled to seek compensation from such Mall Buyer for any costs incurred in delivering the Mall Item back to such Mall Buyer.

 

1.7       Seapurchase reserves the right to terminate a User’s access to Seapurchase Mall if it suspects any abuse of the Refunds and Return Policy described in these Seapurchase Support Policy and, if Seapurchase deems appropriate, may also impose penalties (including recovery of any fees or charges incurred as a consequence of such abuse).

 

1.8       The Refunds and Return Policy for Mall Items described in these Seapurchase Support Policy are in addition to the general Refunds and Return Policy described in the Refunds and Return Policy.  If there is any inconsistency, the Refunds and Return Policy described in these Seapurchase Support Policy will prevail in respect of Mall Items.

2.3     If a Mall Seller is found to have offered or sold any Mall Item on Seapurchase Mall that is restricted under Seapurchase’s Prohibited and Restricted Items PolicySeapurchase reserves the right to, at its sole discretion, remove the offending Mall Items from Seapurchase Mall, and execute refunds (and any adjustments) to Mall Buyers who have purchased such Mall Items (even if Mall Buyers did not comply with any of the requirements described in Section 1 above), in which case Mall Seller agrees to reimburse Seapurchase for all such refunds (including any related costs and charges) and authorizes Seapurchase to deduct such amounts from any amounts payable to Mall Seller or take such other action as deemed appropriate by Seapurchase in its discretion.

 

2.4     Seapurchase’s determination to approve a refund or return of a Mall Item pursuant to Section 1 above is binding on the relevant Mall Seller.  Mall Sellers agree to comply and do all such things as necessary to give effect to a Mall Buyer’s request for a refund or return approved by Seapurchase.

2.6     Notwithstanding the above, Seapurchase may determine at its sole and absolute discretion that a Mall Item approved for refund or return shall not be returned to Mall Seller, and Mall Seller shall be deemed to have forfeited all rights to such Mall Item.  

 

2.7     For any refund or return rejected by Seapurchase where the relevant Mall Item was received by Seapurchase, Seapurchase will organize the delivery of such Mall Item to the relevant Mall Buyer’s address pursuant to Section 1.6 above.
